Would you use this flask for touring?

Hello,
I am looking for some valuable feedback for a product I'm developing. I know there are other flasks out there, but from other feedback/reviews they don't meet the needs of all riders. I'm developing one to fit cages, and can be used one handed (choice of 3 lids), plus trying to make a jersey inspired design. Good for hot and cold drinks and looking to also make a larger size than the 400ml shown.
Hope you have time to take a better look. I'm just one person trying to add something to the cycling community.

    I am not sure that a flask is a touring necessity especially at 400ml when it is replacing a 750-1000ml of water.

    Your link just takes me back to this page.

    I think I said this on one of your threads before, but the Elite Deboyo flask already exists, is bigger capacity and works pretty well. What does your one do that is different/better?

    If its cheaper and works just as well i'd buy it over the Elite.

    Its called a buyer's market

    I would say the write up and details all look very good.
    Not massively moved by the colour options, but I'm sure plenty of people will be.

    The stretch target would be the one that would attract me more, but I appreciate you need to surpass your target to enable that.

    I wasn't aware of the Deboyo up until now, but looking online I've seen at least one review showing it leaking :-(
